Haven't posted much at all...but read and lurk everyday. I just thought I would update everyone on the goings on here. Well...I finally decidd to quit the latest "fad Diet" that I have been on for the last 5 months (and spend way too much on by the way)....and seek some serious help. I made an appointment with a nutritionalist, and decided thsi is what I need. (check out her website...http://www.world.std.com/~eatwrite/
) Anyways, she spent an hour and a half with me today. And I was quite candid about my habits...which was not easy. And she diagnosed me with having a binge eating disorder. It was really weird to hear that. I mean, I KNOW I am a compulsive overeater...but I never heard anyone..actually tell me this. She wants to work with me every week for 45 minutes at a time. She also suggested me working with a therapist, trained in eating disorders...about the why's and how to over come them...and to help with body image and such. The way she put it to me....telling a person who is a binge eater to just go on a diet, is like telling someone with anorexia to just eat.
So, basically, what it is came down to, is that I discontinue my current weight loss plan (she wrote a letter stating how unhealthy their program is for MEand how weighing in 3 times a week, is counter productive....and I might add...I got $1330.00 back...wohoo) (I know what you all are thinking....but I was desperate to lose weight) And this week I am working on adding more food to my diet. We are moving really slow...and making baby changes. I know I have a long road ahead of me...but it is going to save my life. For me...it is a lot more than the food. Obviously,it plays an important part of my weightloss efforts...but well you all get the point. So...I will keep ya all posted. Thanks for letting me share
